Description

Bounce Back - a day-long workshop on rhythms of resilience


Loss and gain

Joy and sorrow

Praise and blame

Come and go like the wind

To be happy, sit like a great tree

In the midst of them all

–The Buddha


We all know that life is full of ups and downs, so how can we be happy even when stuff happens? How do we bounce back?

This workshop offers tried and tested tools that can help us make the most of the good times and be more resourced to deal with the bad times. Over the course of the day, Margot Henderson will share a few simple practices to help calm the mind, relax the body and build our natural resilience.

Activities include:

  • Body mind mapping
  • 5 a day feel-good factor
  • Breathing-space
  • Deep relaxation
  • Mindfulness and movement

Margot is an experienced tutor and workshop facilitator with a history of working with the WEA.

A Scots - Irish poet, storyteller and community artist with a background in community education and integrative arts therapy, Margot also practices and teaches mindfulness meditation.

Wear comfortable clothing.

A light lunch will be provided.


Who we are

The Worker’s Educational Association has been providing

high-quality educational opportunities to communities since

1903. Our vision is for a better world: equal, democratic and

just; through adult education the WEA challenges and inspires

individuals, communities and society.

The WEA Women@Work project aims to dismantle the barriers

women face caused by:

  • rural isolation
  • poverty
  • inequality

And to give women a voice:

  • in the home
  • at work
  • and in the community, both locally and nationally.

We have seven W@W network areas across the Highlands, each

with a local coordinator who organises events in their area.

The seven network areas are:

  • Caithness
  • Sutherland
  • Ross-shire
  • Skye & Lochalsh
  • Lochaber
  • Inverness
  • Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey

Our workshops and events are free to attend.

The Women@Work project is funded by the Scottish Government Promoting Equality and Cohesion Fund.
